To me, the divination tools such as Tarot or Runes are just that; tools. So when I found a Goddess Tarot app for the iPhone, I’m of the school of thought that using an electronic version is just as valid as using a paper based one.
What I like about the app is that it has a built in booklet to explain the cards. It includes the Celtic Cross spread, and the Three Card spread. You can pick just one card, and you can browse through the cards to memorize and read up on each card’s meaning.
The artwork is by Kris Waldherr, who illustrated books and does lovely art with goddess themes.
Kris Waldherr is an author, illustrator, and designer whose art has been exhibited in the National Museum of Women in the Arts. She is the author of Doomed Queens, The Lover’s Path and The Book of Goddesses, and creator of The Goddess Tarot. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
For those who prefer to feel the cards in your hands, you can also get The Goddess Tarot Deck through Amazon.
I also love the symbolism of the cards. Unlike the Waite-Rider deck which is a bit too dismal for my tastes, the Goddess tarot offers more in the way of lessons and powerful outcomes rather than focusing on the negative.
